Sullivan's Cove, Bourbon Cask HH0104, 60%

Price: $148.00 Issue: Winter 2010 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Patrick Maguire, who now heads up Hobart's Sullivan's Cove distillery started work with Bill Lark before taking over Sullivan's Cove in 2003. A French-design brandy still produces a very floral, sweet, and full-flavored spirit with notes of lime blossom and wood sap. It's a bold distillate, but there's sufficient sweetness and fragrant spice to balance. €95
